The climate project Schlegel is currently made of a monoculture forest with 86% spruce trees and uniform tree heights. Thereby, the forest is vulnerable to climate-related disasters such as storms, heat stress, and beetle infestations. To make the forest more resilient against the consequences of climate change, the following measures get implemented: (1) planting diverse, climate-resilient tree species such as douglas fir and fir, red alder, beech, birch, chestnut and maple, (2) stimulating natural rejuvenation, (3) wildlife management to prevent serious forest damage. By implementing these measures, the Schlegel climate project avoids and removes carbon emissions from the atmosphere, by decreasing the climate risk of the forest and increasing its structural diversity.
